REES electricity

The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) which ran from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2020, has been replaced by Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS).

The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a South Australian Government energy efficiency scheme that provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy. It does this through establishing energy efficiency and audit targets to be met by electricity and gas retailers.

Under the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 and Gas Regulations 2012, the Essential Services Commission (Commission) has functions and powers as are necessary and expedient to give effect to the REES. 

Further information on the REES regulatory framework can be accessed below.
